Eddie Murphy has once again become the subject of a death hoax.

The Dreamgirls actor has twice been falsely reported to have died this year in Swiss snowboarding accidents, first in February and again in July.

Prank website Global Associated News carried the false story again over the weekend, sparking rumours on social media that Murphy had died.

Murphy is in fact alive, having attended Spike TV's tribute to his life and career in Los Angeles on Saturday (November 3) at the Saban Theater.

Eddie Murphy: One Night Only featured Chris Rock, Tracy Morgan, Martin Lawrence, Adam Sandler and Brett Ratner honouring the star's place in the history of American comedy.

Spike TV is airing the One Night Only special on Wednesday, November 14.
